The Green Bay Packers unveiled a new collection of original Packers inspired art and historical

The NFL has suspended Green Bay Packers receiver Geronimo Allison without pay for the season opener on September 10 against Seattle for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

A statement from the National Football League says Allison violated the NFL's substance abuse policy.

He can take part in the entire preseason, including practices and games, and can return to the active roster on Monday, Sept. 11.

While the majority of this trouble has stemmed from injury woes, Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison has now encountered a one-game suspension. Allison didn't receive jail time, but did have to pay a fine and perform community service.

Allison caught 12 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns in 10 regular-season games as a rookie a year ago. He added five receptions for 65 yards in three playoff games. He recorded 202 yards and two touchdowns. Defensive tackle Letroy Guion will be suspended for the first four games for violating the policy on performance-enhancing substances. His $540,000 salary is not guaranteed, so he would only be paid for games in which he's on the 53-man roster.
